Use a scanning app on a device to scan QR codes to do simple research about well-known authors, and to review and recall favorite books. This activity might also spark curiosity in students to read books that are new to them!
Materials could be used as literacy centers or as weekly challenges.
Students read the clue on the poster, and take a guess as to who the author might be. Then they scan the QR codes on the small posters which are linked to author websites.
This sampler includes posters leading to the websites for Marc Brown and Cynthia Rylant.
